  1. What did I find?

    Trying to figure out what I found, can anyone help?
  2. Iowa River Find

    Was out last evening with my boys for an hour hunt before the sun went down. I have found many different fossils in the same area, mammoth, bison, deer, and paleo points. Today was a first for me, horse femur!
  3. ID confirmation request

    Good morning. I have a fossil Echinoid that I would like to verify. The information I have is Eupatagus antillarum, Pliocene. It's from the Caloosahatchee Formation, Lafayette County, Florida. Comments please.
  4. Descent into the Pit - Savannah, GA

    Hello Everyone, I had the honor of being invited by @markmg to a trip down into essentially ... a big hole in the ground. Woo Hoo !! A rather large gravel/sand pit that is being mined to 50-60ft ? We were not quite sure but hopefully at least as deep as the dredging that happens on the river. You know .. a play date ! .. haha Well, having just rained out my river trip on Friday I came prepared to slog through some mud. Let's just say it was lucky we didn't have a The Princess Bride (1987) moment because the water made the sand and mud a bit soft in some spots. The open pit has to be constantly pumped out or it would fill up with water and you'd have a nice deep pond ... not so good for a gravel business. Mark had been down in the pit on several occasions and asked that I join him and see if I couldn't help him find anything ... Mark was being brutally teased having previously come out and found - ON THE RAMP- a partial meg tooth. Well, we didn't find any mega-sharks down in the pit, but after exploring for about 90 minutes, the first small hints of the phosphate pebbles we were looking for started showing up. They were washing out of a layer sitting just above an impermeable formation of red compacted clay with shell impressions. Unfortunately the preservation was poor. And very crumbly .. I'm assuming these first finds had been sitting out too long and they were returning to the ground. They were encrusted with precipitated minerals and were delicate. The first hints that maaaaaybe this wasn't a dry hole ?? Some of the encrusted bone that didn't crumble to dust ....
  5. Pliocene Greece sponges ?

    Among marine fossils of Pliocene , ostrea , cardium etc. Any possibility for sponges ?

  12. CORAL FOSSIL ID

    Coral fossil from Cyprus PLiocene deposits, can anyone identify the species?
  13. I have a lot of these and I dont what to overload people. Here is another fossil i found in the overburden at my plant. Ocala formation in alachua county Florida. I dont have the slightest clue what this could be from, but i think it is big and probably a mammal.
  14. Dermal

    When hunting the Peace River, I find some - many Ray dermals of this general form (not quite as pristine as these phosphate mine versions: I have been finding more of the little "buttons" recently, maybe 5-10 a hunting day. When in the productive areas, I find lots of these which I always thought of base plates for attaching bottom of Ray spines. The I ran into something that I have definitely NOT seen previously. Less than the size of a penny. So, what is this and , am I moving back or forward in time comparing this new arrival with older stuff? Usual suspects: @Harry Pristis, @siteseer, @MarcoSr @sixgill pete@Al Dente @cowsharks
  15. Neohipparion eurystyle

    Mostly I hunt the Peace River, but sometimes I venture into the tributaries. About 3 weeks ago I hunted a creek and found this small lower premolar. Hoping it was not Equus ( no disrespect intended), I sent it to Richard Hulbert for identification. His answer: Identification of lower molars is difficult.. This horse has an isolated protocone on its upper molars making those easier to ID. I liked getting this identification because finding one of these can help to "date" a hunting location. Fast forward to yesterday, hunting a different tributary creek and Looks pretty similar to me.. Here are some sources to compare, 1st from Kansas, 2nd from Florida museum of Natural History. Thinking size as the 1st criteria because there are lots of variations in the lower jaw teeth of the SAME horse based on wear and position. Just documenting some new insights that I do not have on many of my other horse tooth finds. Enjoy. Jack
  16. Who’s bone is this?

    I stopped at Lake McConaughy (near Ogalalla, Nebraska) on my way out to Colorado and picked this (along with some nice burrow casts, probably clam) from one of the beaches. I’m not very familiar with the fossils in this part of the state and wondered if anyone could help me with who this chunk of bone may have belonged to. I know it’s a stretch to id this considering how little of the bone is there and the lack of either end, but any help would be appreciated.
  17. Pliocene river find

    When I picked up this bone and pieces my thought was bison. Reviewing it I’m not so sure, so will I defer to the experts! I was disappointed though to see this had been run over by an ATV on the sand bar... also sad to see really how polluted our water ways are...
  18. I’m excited about this find, not only is it a fossil, form what not totally sure, but I also believe it is a tool! You can see the marks from where it has been carefully cracked. On the flat side of the bone, you can see where it has been flattened as well. If not a tool then certainly harvested bone marrow. This was found in an area close to other Clovis finds.
  19. Pliocene bone river find in Iowa

    To me this seems to be a toe or foot bone of some sort but from what? Found in an area where bison, mammoth have been found. thanks for looking and any educated guesses!
  20. Sialis strausi ILLIES, 1967

    From the album Invertebrates

    Sialis strausi ILLIES, 1967 Alderfly larvae Late Pliocene Willershausen am Harz Lower Saxony Germany
  21. I had posted a poster of Florida shells of mine earlier but could not zoom in enough so I am posting individual fossil shells in hopes of getting correct identifications or adding to photo database. I am new to this so please gently guide me if I am not following a proper procedure or posting in an incorrect place. I have many high quality photos but am not sure where to put them. I can't seem to create a gallery for myself. Help Please? Thanks, Scott
  22. Newbie wanting to learn...

    I have a few pictures here of some shards of bone, horn, and or antler. Is there a way to tell the difference between them? The first two photos I believe to be horn, bison. Number three and four I also believe to be horn because of the wood grain pattern, but because it is a small fragment 1 1/2” I suppose it could be bone? photos 5&6 look to me like a rib bone, has a woody grain to it but is very solid, thick. However, I feel this could be horn or bone. How to tell the difference? The final two photos to me just looks like a shard of river polished bone, not horn. The wood grain is much less prominent than the others.
  23. Florida Fossil Shells

    I don't know where to begin. I am completely new to the forum. I will eventually be posting some fossils for help with ID and others that are identified by experts already. Having said that, this poster represents some of my fossils. I am not sure if can even read the names underneath. I may have to post separately. Any ID corrections would be graciously accepted. What I really need help with is locations. While living in FL for several years, I would go to a couple of locations in Polk Co. where I knew road base, I believe it is called aggregates were often kept. I visited and collected. What I don't know if where the shells originated. APAC Pit in Sarasota, Aggregates Pit in Bonita Springs, Star Ranch Quarry, Clewiston, Cochran Pit in Labelle to name a few possible locations. Based on the shells collected, it would seem that most come from either the Tiamiami or Caloosahatchee Formations, not sure which members....Pinecrest Beds, Bermont, Ayers Landing Ft. Denaud etc. How do I know what collection data to include on my label. I can list where I found it, but it is not its origin. ID is pretty ok with Petuch's works, but if I don't know the origin, it makes ID much more difficult. Any input or ideas to help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. I have included a sample collection label for anyone to comment on how to improve. One is more vague since I don't know origin, the other is from a fossil I purchased. Date on label was date I added to my collection. How important is it to list the taxonomist such as Petuch or Conrad etc? scienceteacher79

  25. Cross section of Clypeaster

    Found what appears to be a cross-section of a Clypeaster fossil in Pliocene sea deposits, on the Greek island of Kythera. The length is 16 cm. Any help and suggestions on the species would be much appreciated!
